Need help with email repair!

By Doctor Gallop

  1. After doing too much registry cleaning, I now have a problem with my email client.
    I use Yahoo Mail.
    When I am on a web site and try to click on an email link so as to send an email, the [attached] "warning" window pops up! Does anyone know if this can be repaired?
    trying to get help from Yahoo Support is a waste of time because you can never talk to a person.
    Any advice would be appreciated but please, if explaining what I should do and how to do it, please explain in "layman's" terms.
    Thank you.

    actually, yahoo/gmail are not email clients -- they're webmail clients
    (what attachment?)
    Has it ever worked that way? -- I doubt it.
    most website links for "send email" invoke a mailto:someone@website-domain
    which will invoke your default email client -- which is undefined.

    I believe you need to copy link,
    log into your webbased email,
    pase the link,
    remove the mailto:
    and then complete your msg and click send.
